Let’s remember this 5-second historic statement by the former Speaker of the House.
“…but we have to pass the bill so that you can – uh – find out what is in it.”
Now that we found out, we do know some of the intrusive and punishing mandates of this bill. Most citizens detest and fear consequences of “Obamacare”. There are more horrors in this law than can easily be recounted, to be revealed in substance and consequence if implemented fully. For now, corporate preparations and health worries in a drastic and unprecedented shift is damaging the already struggling economy. The new law is forcing the USA into socialized medicine, providing less choice, putting doctors and medical practices into failing and sometimes unethical positions, forcing them to become government snoops, denying some timely healthcare under penalty, transforming insurance companies and medical establishments into bureaucratic scribes, and demoralizing senior citizens. This solution was incredibly disguised as “making healthcare affordable” while it does the opposite in the long run. But the worst aspect is that it is an insidious form of tyranny. A Trojan horse , a virus with an appealing name.
The US House of Representatives, traditionally known as “the people’s house”, listened to our nationwide protest which is broadly non-partisan. Our voices and fervor have made a difference, if not by logic, then by the fear of losing re-election. The midnight “ramrod” passage of this bill, and Pelosi’s nutty appeal to irresponsibility by the House, are in the Congressional record. The midnight madness is over, and many woke up to smell the fresh coffee. Last week, in deference to the lack of Executive Department budget for the nation, the House generously agreed to continue funding government operations at current levels for the next year, minus the added expense implementing and enforcing a national nightmare. At very least, this will do no harm.
Senator, you are the senior physician in the room, operating on the heart of the nation. There has been an arterial perforation. You must stop the bleeding and repair the artery immediately. Your colleagues handed you the sterile patch materials & instruments you need. The sooner this is done and the operation is over, the less will be the pain and recovery time. Do not prolong the nation’s agony, and do not let the patient bleed to death. Follow the House and help the patient get well. Few will believe you if you toss the instruments back and try to blame them for your patient’s demise.
While we are following the main story of the Syrian ruler being forced to give up chemical weapons, the media is finally airing reports of our Executive Branch under President Obama, with complicity of State Department helping the rebels with weapons and support, in Syria and formerly in Libya and Egypt. This is in concert with the Saudi’s and others who (like President Obama) want regime changes in the Middle East.
So the Weapons of Mass Destruction have been found. As most of us suspected, they were shuffled around while Bush-bashing occurred. Surely Syria has some of them. A diplomatic move to allow de-fusing of the tensions between the US and Syria this week resulted in Syria’s agreement to allow them to be removed under the auspices of UN. In the 2011 “Arab Spring” and thereafter, the Muslim Brotherhood rebels got some of these WMDs, too. Benghazi could have been a key point in this chain of events. More will be revealed about the part our Administration and State Department played in this maneuvering, and the attack one year ago on 9-11-2012, which has never been fully explained.
Did Obama announce that WMD were found? No. He is assisting the Saudi’s to enable the Syrian rebels to have them too (including terrorist and rogue elements as well as Al Qaeda) for political leverage against a non-Muslim-Brotherhood ruler in Syria. On a larger scale, it is becoming more obvious to all that Obama is clearly assisting the Brotherhood to gain power in the world power matrix. Since Obama claims to be a Christian, the question arises: are these Christian characteristics, to enable and assist Muslim Brotherhood goals? The MB is involved in suppression and murder of Christians in the Middle East. While feckless and naïve congressional leaders believe the Muslim Brotherhood is moderate, MB actions speak louder than words. Our leaders seem to fall for the MB claims to moderation, which are part of their credo used to gain dominance. In Egypt, this lesson is clear: Political power allows them to revert to their radical and cruel goals.
Let’s reflect: Al Qaeda attacked the USA killing thousands and destroying the World Trade Center 12 years ago, shaking the foundations of our security and way of life. Now we are giving them support to fight a ruler in the Middle East!
What is wrong with this picture?
The timbers on our Ship of State are bending, with Congress allowing a president to bypass representative government and the constitution with destructive orders and actions crippling our nation. The USA is suffering economically and politically at home and abroad. We must elect representatives and senators who understand the strategies of those who wish to dominate and practice intolerance in the world. Our leaders must protect the constitution, sovereignty, and liberty in our founding principles. This also allows peaceful co-existence and respect for other nation’s sovereignty. It makes the USA an example of tolerance and hope for all people.
President Obama must be impeached and removed in our political process before he causes more chaos and strengthens destructive impulses in the world’s power grid.
